That is OK... CGI was fine. Pretty much the only thing I was satisfied in this movie.

Re: Are Battlestar Fans Trek fans?
If Starfleet wanted to be more militarily effective, they should use stop using wimpy phasers and start using powerful molecule-destroying disruptors, replace photon torpedoes with antimatter torpedoes, use power armor, and recruit more redshirts to be used as plot armor for the main characters.

I think they should stop using wimpy phasers and start using assault rifles loaded with old-fashioned 5.56x45 rifle ammunition. Frequency match THIS, Borg scum!

If they're going to use projectile weapons, they should skip gunpowder and go right to coilguns with internal inertial compensators to handle the massive recoil.

[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Are Battlestar Fans Trek fans?
I did already point out that photon torpedoes are antimatter torpedoes, right?

Anyway, screw that ****. Starfleet has transporter guns that beam bullets through walls - but for some reason they were dropped in favor of 'regenerative phaser rifles'.

The rifle with the transporter on it was a homebrew mod. The rifle itself was never so equipped originally, as transporters also don't work in the environment in which the rifle would be required.

Re: Are Battlestar Fans Trek fans?
Well Starfleet and the Federation aren't exactly well-known for making decent infantry weapons.  They don't even have infantry, just security teams.

If I recall the episode summary properly it was based on a Federation prototype design.

Re: Are Battlestar Fans Trek fans?
Correct, the rifle itself was meant to be used on planets like the one where Data went to evacuate human colonists because the Sheliak were on their way. However, to the best of my knowledge, the prototype design did NOT include a micro-transporter on the barrel originally.

Whilst I understand that Trek will be talked about in this thread, I think it has become far too much Trek, and not enough BSG IMHO
